Kate Mantsho was married to Jacob Zuma for 16 years, until she died in 2000. She is thought to have killed herself by taking too many anti-malaria drugs, according to reports. She and Jacob Zuma had five kids together. Mxolisi is the first one. People call him “Saady Zuma.”
Mxolisi was born in the country of Mozambique in the year 1980. He and his siblings grew up on the streets of Mozambique because their family had fled the apartheid government in South Africa.
Duduzane and Duduzile, Phumzile and Vusi Nhlakanipho Zuma are his younger brothers and sisters. These are the five kids that Kate Mantsho had before she died. When Mxolisi was in Mozambique, he went to school and learned Portuguese.
After ten years, the family moved to Zimbabwe, where they stayed until 1993, when they finally moved back to South Africa. When Kate Mantsho died, her oldest son, Mxolisi, was only 20 years old, and her youngest son, Vusi, was only eight.
He is married to two women. In 2008, he married Phindile Luthuli. In 2017, he married Ziyanda Dlamini, a Swazi princess and the daughter of King Mswati. Their wedding in Swaziland got a lot of attention from the media.
Mxolisi is a successful investor with business interests in more than six investment and broker companies. He stays away from social media because he doesn’t want to share his life with strangers. In 2017, he was accused of trying to use his father’s power to get a government contract in exchange for a bribe.
